With the Leafs in Winnipeg on Saturday, Wilson was asked if Reimer will play the final two games of the trip:

"He's going to play tomorrow and we will go from there," Wilson said. "It's about playing well and the Monster has played really well when he has gone in there. I'm just trying to get James his reps so he can catch up. He should be a big part of our success in the second half."

Thank god he knows what is doing ! WAIT THAT'S OFC A GIVEN!

Come on people remember last season when he was working his butt off and almost made us have a run for the playoffs, we need to get reimer going if we want that same run and solidify our spot for the playoffs.

He's been playing good, one bad game isn't going to be a re-occurrence for crying out loud. The more he plays the more he will be able to carry his load and come back to full form a concussion like syndrome, remember this guy was also away from conditioning for a while.

For me it has changed this year, I am actually okay with gustavsson's performance this year, so I dont mind it at all actually. But for the future overall I think its going to be reimer for sure.
